Working towards the Future
Returning to work after Maternity Leave is a huge step. When you’re still getting your head around parenthood and – possibly – still existing on not very much sleep, your return to the corporate space can be a big jump for most parents. Throw in the emotional upheaval of, often, leaving your child for the first time and this can be a really stressful time.
In this episode, I chat to the wonderful Charlotte, from Power of the Parent, who explains how she started her own business to support parents with this transition. Charlotte works with individuals and companies, to explore how they can improve the conversation around juggling work and children, as well as improving flexible working opportunities.Charlotte talks about her own influences and the rise of honest parenting in social media that is helping to start a culture of change for working parents. We discuss what more is needed and how we can all support each other in this important transition.
